Amankora Gangtey Lodge, Gangtey

Bhutan

Minimalist luxury perched above the spectacular Phobjikha Valley

Amankora, a collection of imaginatively designed and impeccably located lodges, provides the most amazing experience of Bhutan. This mystical country is a home to dramatic landscapes and a rich spiritualism that’s a real joy to explore.

The Gangtey lodge is set in the remote wilderness of the Phobjikha Valley. Lush hills and vast plains create a magnificent backdrop. The 16th century monastery, Gangtey Goemba, stands proudly nearby.

If it’s an intimate stay that you’re looking for, you won’t be disappointed. With just eight suites decorated in Aman’s signature style, stripped-back luxury is assured. Soothing wooden furnishings combine with plenty of light from the expansive windows for a natural and relaxing setting.

The spectacular landscape is begging to be explored. Trek through the valley on mountain trails, finding wildlife and abundant flora along the way. Rare orchids and colourful rhododendrons punctuate the dense green of the forest. Endangered black-necked cranes and yaks make their home on the hills.

Return to Amankora and take a seat in the communal dining room. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide stunning mountain views while you enjoy traditional Bhutanese and authentic music. The lounge is the place to unwind and plan your next adventure. You won’t find a more relaxing place for yoga than in Amankora’s peaceful spa.
